I completed my commercial training at ActivePilot and I can’t recommend the school highly enough. I trained with Sevak and he was not only extremely knowledgeable but also invested in my success as a pilot. That second part was huge for me - Sevak always found the right way to explain things in the moment and I could feel my skills improving during each flight...Read Full Google Review

Their team looked very professional with matching uniforms but what stood out for me was their customized ID Tags with appropriate pilot ratings which helps students with similar licenses connect to one another. I stopped my flight school search as soon as I found this place...Read Full Google Review

I've always been interested in flying and have recently been considering getting my private pilot license. I came by ActivePilot and was blown away by staff (Ari?) and the flight simulators they have on sight. They spent a fair amount of time explaining my options, not pushy at all. Can't wait to get started next week!...Read Full Google Review
